Now in their seventh year, the awards celebrate the best work in Scotland’s public and voluntary sectors.

Other categories include Young People’s Project of the Year, Education Initiative of the Year, Health and Social Care Integration Award and Environmental Initiative of the Year.

Winners in each category will be announced at an awards ceremony in Glasgow's Grand Central Hotel on Thursday, November 6.

Professor Valerie Webster, Executive Dean of the HLS and Pro Vice-Chancellor of External Relations, said: “The School is proud to sponsor the Older People’s Project of the Year category.

“The School’s Healthy Ageing research programme is focused on promoting positive ageing, managing age-related conditions and syndromes, and improving health and social care.

“As a University committed to the common good, GCU is pleased to play its part in the Herald Society Awards 2014 and to get behind those who make a positive impact in the community.”
